STELLA CHROMA - Into The Woods Collection - Swatches & Review

Press Sample/Review

Hi everyone! Today I have a new collection from STELLA CHROMA to show you! This is a beautiful autumn/winter collection with something for everyone I think! See end of post for purchase info and a discount code! 

The Into The Woods collection is a collaboration between Pam and her husband inspired by animals they see in the woods at their home in Indiana. Pam was was shocked when Mr STELLA CHROMA  told her that several of the animals they enjoy watching were once endangered there. This is what inspired this collection! Years ago, deer, turkeys, foxes, and eagles were endangered in Indiana. Through the end of the year, a portion of sales for these polishes will be donated to the Indiana Wildlife Federation! I've never been to Indiana (or much of the USA for that matter) but this collection feels like a little visit there from here in France. 

So let's get to the swatches! 

   
Sight For Soar Eyes 'a deep chocolate brown with a prominent orange shimmer just like the body of the bald eagle. It's highlighted by gold and white flakies as a nod to the standout head and beak of this majestic bird.'

This colour is just my cup of tea. I love a good brown polish and this one is so interesting with the shimmer and unique in my collection. The flakes are a lovely touch and catch the light. This is one of my favourites from this collection. I used 2 coats and topcoat.
 
Ugly Peacock 'a lighter brown based, mildly shifty polish that hits shades of green, gold, and orange depending on the lighting you're viewing it in. This polish was designed after the feathers of that "other" peacock... the turkey!'

This is a stunning green with a nice subtle shift. I've actually had Chanel Alchimie on my wishlist forever but never pulled the trigger. I'm glad I didn't as this is similar but better in my opinion. Again like Sight for Soar eyes it seems to catch the light with a hint of sparkle. Beautiful. Formula was lovely as well. I used 2 coats and topcoat.
 
Whiskey Tango Fox... 'a deep red/orange polish with a healthy helping of holo flakies to help it shine!'

I have to say, I love the name of this one haha! This is a juicy orange packed with holo flakies and I absolutely love it, despite orange not being my favourite. This is the perfect fall or summer polish to me. STELLA CHROMA does this colour better than anyone I'm sure! I used 2 coats and topcoat. The formula was excellent.

Deer Abby 'a creamy white with a dusting of copper holo glitter. Modeled after the beautiful antlers seen on male deer in the summer and fall. (Fun fact! Deer shed their antlers - usually winter to late spring - and they regrow every year.)'

This is the polish that stood out most to me when I opened the collection. I love a good white or cream polish and the combination of the white base and copper glitter is stunning. Neutral and simple but with a bit of sparkle. Plus I'm a sucker for copper so I love this. The formula is slightly thicker than the others but I think that's often just the nature of white polishes. I used 3 coats for full opacity. You could probably get away with two but as I was taking photos and have some slight ridges on some nails, I preferred to use 3 to be sure. I finished with topcoat of course. 

The Into The Woods collection will retail for $12 each and will be offered as a set for $44 through the end of November. It will launch November 17th at noon EST.
